Djblets 0.7.12 Release Notes

Release date: April 19, 2013


  • Massively speed up datagrid rendering.

    The rendering code for datagrids had a flaw where it would re-populate some state for every cell, and this could be very expensive. It’s now reused on all cells.

    We saw this with one application where a datagrid would take 6 seconds to render. Now it takes 0.5 seconds.


  • Added an install_extension() function to ExtensionManager.

    This can be used to install extensions dynamically from a file or URL.

    Patch by Surya Nallu.


  • CounterField now allows incrementing/decrementing by values other than 1.

    Patch by Raja Venkataraman.


  • The thumbnail() and crop_image() template tags now work with Django Storage backends.
  • Added a save_image_to_storage() function in djblets_images that makes it easy to save image data to Storage backends.


  • Resources now consider both Last Modified and ETag headers simultaneously when determining if a cached payload is still valid. Previously, if the Last Modified timestamps were the same, the ETag check would fail.
